The Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme

The construction of the Snowy Mountains Scheme led to a dramatic increase in the population of the Tumbarumba Region in the 1960s. It was at this time that a high school was established and a major expansion occurred at Tumbarumba Hospital.

Khancoban was originally built to accommodate workers and their families on the Snowy Mountains Scheme. The lovely Lady Hudson rose garden in the town is a memorial to these workers.

Murray 1 Power Station on the Alpine Way near Khancoban is the second largest station in the Snowy Mountains Scheme. Next to the station is the Murray 1 Visitors Centre, which offers an exciting interactive experience with a wide range of displays, "hands on" models and exhibits. Light refreshments are available in the Café.

There is a display of historic photos of the Snowy Mountain Scheme at the Khancoban General Store.
